“Karan Johar our very own Jaffar Panahi is partying somewhere” : Q
Has India to offer a clean Pavilion in Berlin Film festival encouraging our SWATCH BHARAT agenda very proudly? What should our Information & Broadcast minister Smriti Irani has to say on this ? An Indian Pavilion is made in Berlin along with an Indian delegation led by Karan Johar, that includes actresses Bhumi Pednekar and Vani Tripathi, filmmakers Shaji Karun and Jahnu Barua, Ashok Kumar Parmar, Joint Secretary, Films, Ministry of Information and Broadcasting (MIB), and Amita Sarkar
Deputy Director General, Confederation of Indian Industry (CII), organised by the MIB and CII. But unfortunately we can see an empty pavilon with just frames of our honourable Prime Minister Mr . Narendra Modi along with Mrs Smriti Irani.
There are six Indian and South Asian films selected at the Berlin film festival. These include the world premiere of Q’s (Qaushiq Mukherjee) Garbage in the Panorama section. This hard-hitting fiction drama explores what happens when three lives collide — a taxi-driver who is also a social media troll, a woman he has enslaved, and another woman who is hounded after her ex-boyfriend leaks ‘revenge porn’ online. Set in Goa, it features Tanmay Dhanania, Trimala Adhikari and Satarupa Das. The film is produced by Hansal Mehta (Shahid) and Shaailesh R Singh and co-produced by Q. Q’s earlier feature Gandu, in Bengali, was also in Panorama in Berlin in 2011.
Fortunately Q’s film has brought some dirt yo Berlin otherwise India can offer only Swacchata. The Gandu director has said “It is beautiful. The Indian Pavillion. There is an Indian Contigency as well. They were somewhere. And Karan Johar , our very own Jaffar Panahi, is somewhere here also. I didn’t see them. They don’t know is . They had a party I heard . How fun!”
